KidPix and Maths

One of our oldest applications, Kidpix Mackiev, which is on the laptops is being used at the moment for students to represent addition problems. They are then adding the pictures to a slideshow and exporting them out for iPods so we can view them on the iPods. We are moving them to the iPods via sendtodropbox.com and we also investigated using email but we decided we wanted to have the slideshows in the one file in dropbox.  When the children send their work to sendtodropbox they put in 10 for the subject and all their filees will be in a folder called 10.

Here is an example of a finshed product by Lachlan. Its a work still in progress so some feedback for Lachlan would be great.
Adding to 10

Grade 1/2

The grade 1/2 learning community have begun investigating China.  They began the unit by collaborating on the wallwisher site and contributing their wonderings.  Wallwisher is great for collaboarating together and there is also an app called Lino that allows students to collaborate in a similar way on the ipads or ipods.  Here is the link for the wallwisher.

 

Olympics Learning

Yes it’s Olympics time again and for many of our students it’s their first real Olympics that they will remember.  There is so much information to find out about and to share with others. How do our You Can Do It values relate to the Olympics? Persistence, Confidence, Getting Along, Organisation and Resilience.

The grade one and two’s are working on a voicethread.  Voicethread is a site that allows you to add pictures and then comments via text, audio or video.  Each student has created an avatar for themselves rather than displaying their real photo which could be stolen as a part of an identity theft.

Check out the Olympic avatars grade 1/2H created yesterday.
